Firefox 58.0.1-2 missing libs

Upon upgrading from Firefox 58.0.1-1 to Firefox 58.0.1-2 I get this error:

Code: [Select]
$ firefox          
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/lib/firefox/libxul.so:
libvpx.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.

I suspect part of the reason is libvpx isn't updated to its most recent version; I can post my currently installed libvpx lib files and version.

UPDATE: same error with thunderbird

Code: [Select]
pkgfile libvpx.so.5
extra/libvpx
Try libvpx from extra, world doesn't have 1.7 yet.

How do I get it from extra? I have extra available in pacman.conf but all I see 1.6.

ok getting the following error:

looking for conflicting packages...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: ffmpeg: installing libvpx (1.7.0-1) breaks dependency 'libvpx.so=4-64'

I'm not sure how deep this particular dependency rathole goes, but the immediate error should be solvable by installing the offending ffmpeg packages from extra. Or just wait until world catches up.
